JDC/Lauder Youth Camp
1998 BILL GRAHAM AWARD
Every summer, around 1500 Jewish campers from over 20 countries attend Camp Szarvas, which is sponsored by the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (AJJDC). Each summer 70-75 Szarvas Fellows are selected to represent North America at the camp. As American Ambassadors, they are given the unique opportunity to meet, celebrate, explore and share experiences with their Jewish student peers from around the world.
In memory of pioneering producer and founding Rex board member Bill Graham, himself a refugee, this award is for those working to assist children who are victims of political oppression and human rights violations.
